Bat populations are declining due to loss of overwintering habitat and the spread of the fungal disease called "white-nose" syndrome. We are working with partners to collect information on bat activity across southwestern Ontario... so go ahead and let us know what you see using My Field App during summer evenings, watching the skies!
Southern Ontario is packed with roads, and wildlife must now always cope with the dangers associated with them. Let us know what wildlife you see crossing roads using My Field App!
Learn the difference between our native and invasive species, and why balance is needed in our ecosystems. We will be working with partners to investigate these ecological impacts, but we need to know where these invasive species are to begin with! Let us know using My Field App.
Our restoration projects range from government-funded research grants to consultant-driven Environmental Impact Studies. We take an ecological restoration approach that uses methodologies that are supported by our academic and practitioner colleagues. Our goal is to implement innovative solutions, as we aim to find a balance between achieving restored ecological function to wetlands and ideal land management practices that can allow for human activity where necessary.
We are developing both citizen-science, and field biologist tools for collecting standardized measurements of animals, and species presence observations, for the purpose of building a universally-accessible database for future generations.
This is an ongoing initiative within our company. We work independently and with partners to design educational material for the community; such as posters, information cards, pamphlets, coloring books, stickers and more!
8Trees Inc. applies for student co-op funding every year! We are currently part of the co-op program at Brock University. This initiative helps to fulfill our priorities in our mandate to mentor students in the fields of conservation, applied ecology and ecological restoration.
